Corniche Road, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

The Basics

The Corniche is a popular area for family recreation. On warm, sunny days, snag a spot under an umbrella at Corniche Beach at either the public, family, or singles entrances, and cool off with a plunge in the designated swimming area.

In the evenings, you can join locals strolling along the well-paved promenade or sit in one of the landscaped parks and gardens scattered along the way. Be sure to bring your camera, as the Corniche offers spectacular views of Abu Dhabi’s skyline and unobstructed panoramas of the turquoise water.

Full-Day Abu Dhabi City Tour from Abu Dhabi
The tour began punctually. The car was clean and we had all support. We visited the "must see" points of Abu Dhabi, which would be quite difficult or at least a "just see" tour if we were by ourselves. Our guide was Benny, a very gentle guy who knows more than beautiful places, but also give tips and is able to talk about local history, economics, and culture at all. Definitely, I recommend this city tour.

Full-Day Tour of Abu Dhabi City From Dubai, Day Trip with Guide
Amazing trip considering Abu Dhabi opened their boarders up to some travelers 1 week prior. Most places were closed due to covid, but were still able to get some photo ops at various places. The mosque was open & got amazing photos inside!

Full-Day Abu Dhabi City Tour from Abu Dhabi
We had a great experience with our guide Benny. Very personable and knowledgeable having the ability to answer any questions we there at him. He was proactive in reaching out to us before - giving us advice regarding current Covid restrictions and we ended up having no issues during our tour. I would highly recommend doing this type of tour if visiting.

We were not allowed in Abu Dhabi because our covid test had been held 3 days prior to our trip. However Viator changed our trip to the desert safari which was very enjoyable. Thank you for being flexible.

The entire trip was pleasant. The tour guide, Rafiq, was very nice and he gave us a ton of valuable information about Abu Dhabi and UAE in general. The bus was super clean. The sites that we went to were great. I would definitely recommend them.

Abu Dhabi Day Tour From Dubai
My son and I throughly enjoyed the entire tour from start to finish! Some of the highlights for us was the Mosque visit and visiting the date market. This experience is definitely worth the money and more. Mr. Khan was kind and answered any questions we had throughout the day.

Abu Dhabi Half Day City Tour
This was a very nice experience with a very good tour provider. They were proactive in contacting us, which was very important in the absence of internet in the most locations and they offered us for a small amount an upgrade to a private tour. I highly recommend this!

Abu Dhabi City Tour From Dubai
the pass was amazing! RAH Tourism was extremely punctual and attentive, compressing exactly everything that was proposed. I would like to highlight the cordial, friendly and attentive service provided by the guide Aleem Kahn, who was always concerned about giving us information about tourist attractions and other information. I recommend the services, and if it is possible to choose a Guide, choose Aleem.

Abu Dhabi Small-Group Day Trip from Dubai by OceanAir™️
The tour guide of this private tour was very competent and helpful. We have seen the Grand Mosque, the President's Palace, the Palace Hotel and Heritage Village. Unfortunately the Etihad tower was closed on this day, so this great view experience was missing. Thanks to Zian, our guide for al the valuable information presented.

Full-Day Abu Dhabi City Tour from Abu Dhabi
This is the most comprehensive tour of Abu Dhabi I can find. It did not disappoint. There was plenty of time for each stop.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • There is free parking within a 5-minute walk of the beach.

  • Lifeguards are on duty at Corniche Beach during designated swimming hours.

  • There is a small entry fee for the family and singles sections of the beach, but the public area is free.

  • The Corniche was awarded Blue Flag status—an internationally recognized eco-label indicating clean and safe water.

  • Abu Dhabi is a conservative city, so dress modestly on the beach, and cover up before leaving the sand.

How to Get There

The Corniche is easy to reach by taxi, but you can take bus line 34 to the Corniche Street stop as well. The best place to access the free public beach is at the intersection of Corniche Road and Al Khaleej Al Arabi Street. To enjoy the promenade, simply follow the path along the waterfront.

When to Get There

The beach is least crowded during the week; on the weekend, it can be very hard to find a free umbrella. For the best weather, consider visiting during the spring or fall. In the summertime, the beaches are quite hot, but an evening walk along the promenade is still a popular pastime.

Rent a Bike at the Corniche

The most popular way to explore the Corniche is by bike. There are numerous companies that rent out bikes for a reasonable fee as well as bike-share stations. You can take your time when exploring the boardwalk, stopping for a drink at a local cafe or taking photos of the picturesque setting. Just be sure to stick to the designated bike paths.
